A View You Can Afford

Congratulations, kudos and mazal tov to the Columbia administrators who have brought our Alma Mater in line with a handful of other schools now offering a fantastic new financial aid and tuition relief package!

This is especially gratifying because being in New York City, these changes will effectively cost Columbia more in real dollars. But it's worth it. And I am smiling from ear to ear at this moment.

Hopefully, this announcement will help tip the scales in Columbia's favor when it comes to those few football recruits who are still on the fence.

And it would be REALLY nice if it convinces long-shot recruits like Joe Fazio, a big wide receiver who wants to go to Syracuse, but might be dragged away now.

In any case, I hope the Columbia coaches are burning up the phone lines informing all the committed and not-yet-committed freshmen of the financial help that is on the way.

This is truly excellent news. Has anybody done a comparison of our program with those of the other Ivies? As a long time contributor to the College I will attempt to up the ante and hope that other Lions can do the same.

I am using this friendly forum to express my continuing disgust at some of the nonsense that appears on Voyforums. Why aare we the constant target of some jerks on that site?

There's really only one jerk that constantly likes to belittle Columbia,don't let it get your dander up. He takes his share of lumps on that board too.

How can you belittle Columbia when Barack Obama, the leading candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States, and David Patterson, the next Governor of the State of New York, are both graduates of Columbia College?

Who cares about the guy on VOY? He's a loser. This is great news for Columbia, and shows a real commitment on the administration's behalf to attract the best students possible. It is also and obvious boost to athletics recruiting. No matter how you look at it, Columbia is showing much more initiative in spending it's large endowment on value added programs that will make it a better school and better sports program. It's about time.
